Royce Da 5'9" Reveals Details On New Album "Street Hop"

Fans of Royce Da 5’9 are one step closer to receiving his next studio album.

The highly anticipated Street Hop will be delivered in early 2009 via his M.I.C. Records imprint, through a new deal with One Records, the Detroit rapper has announced.

“One Records is proud to be in business with Royce,” said the label’s owner, Hanley Halem. “He is an amazing talent and we feel that he has yet to reach his peak as an artist. Street Hop is a breath of fresh air, at a time when the industry really needs it and we are anxiously looking forward to releasing it.”

The latest Royce Da 5’9 release will be his fourth since unproductive deals with both Tommy Boy Records and Columbia Records led to the independent release of his 2002 debut Rock City (Version 2.0).

The new album will be executive produced by DJ Premier, who provided Royce with “Boom,” the underground hit single from Rock City.

Additional production on Street Hop will come courtesy of Nottz, Green Lantern, Carlos Broady, Ski, Kay Gee, Emile, and of course Premier.

The album will also feature guest appearances by Bun B, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I, to name a few.


Damn, Exec-produced by Premier? Hell yea
